Austin, Texas – The 2016 World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play showed fans on-site and through the telecast that the tournament was not only a showcase of the top 64 golfers in the world but also a showcase of one of the greatest cities in the world by embracing many elements of what makes the Austin community special. Tournament organizers announce that the 2017 Dell Technologies Match Play will again provide fans with some of Austin’s best food options March 22-26 at Austin Country Club.

While at the Fan Village, fans can watch the television broadcast, use their phones and experience golf in new ways through virtual reality, 3D projections and a 360 photobooth.

But it wouldn’t be a golf tournament in Austin without a barbecue option. Micklethwait Craft Meats ( will fill that void with its all-homemade, Central Texas barbecue and New York Style Delicatessen. Micklethwait Craft Meats was founded by owner, Tom Micklethwait, who, on a cold winter's day in December 2012, smoked and served his first barbecue plate “all by his lonesome,” from the window of the vintage Comet trailer on Rosewood Avenue. Micklethwait Craft Meats (Craft Meats) is the result of the hard work and dedication of Tom and a group of loyal friends who met while working in a fine dining restaurant on South Congress. Together, with their love of food, dedication to integrity, excellence and good humor, Craft Meats and Craft Deli strive to provide great food and friendly service in a welcoming atmosphere.

For the taco enthusiasts, Torchy’s Tacos ( offers a variety of their unique concoctions folded in a flour tortilla. Today Torchy's Tacos operate over 40 stores and a trailer park.

The Hat Creek Burger Company ( dream became reality in 2008 behind an Austin bar in a food trailer. The team’s desire to serve mouthwatering perfection and never cut corners quickly set them out from the crowd. Fresh, never frozen, all natural beef served on freshly baked buns with fresh veggies and homemade fermented cucumbers (calling them pickles just wouldn’t do justice!).
